Mission: People Serving People provides education, social and life skill programs to all residents in need. In addition, we can house over 350 individuals and provide up to 1,000 meals every day. Our facility includes a full service kitchen and dining room, two libraries, classrooms and study areas, indoor and outdoor recreational spaces, a medical clinic, child care facilities, a laundry room, computer lab, 99 separate shelter rooms with a bath and 10 two bedroom transitional apartments. Established in 1982, People Serving People grew out of a need for temporary secure shelter. From the humble beginnings in an abandoned wing of the former Francis Drake Hotel to a facility at 400 South 10th Street, we have helped people with the most basic of needs - food and shelter. To assure cost-effectiveness of operations and services, we found it necessary to own our own facility. The dream became a reality in May 2002, when we moved into our existing facility...a fully renovated, ten-story home in downtown Minneapolis.
